Welcome to the Nyberg-Swanson House, the historic home located in Dania Beach that was first constructed in 1912. This home was built in the Colonial Revival architecture style and is known around Southern Florida for its architectural style, community planning contribution, and Dania Beach development roles.
As mentioned before, this home was first constructed in 1912 for Mr. Charles Nelson, who sold the home to Swedish Carl Gustaf Nyberg and his wife Emmy in 1917. After Nyberg passed away Emmy remarried John Swanson in the early 1920s, the couple making this their home for several years to come.
The house itself is 1.5 stories with 5 bedrooms, hosting many distinctive architectural features such as the commonly first-noticed rough-faced cast concrete blocks. It is actually the only surviving example of the use of rustic concrete block construction in the city. It is also notable for its large, hipped dormers, use of metal shingles, delicate spindle balusters inside, and its general use of classical columns.
Any fans of architecture or local Florida history in general will most certainly appreciate this stop in Dania Beach.
